Mel Gibson -- Helping Poor Guatemalan Kids

6/8/2011 8:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson has touched down in Guatemala -- where he's  doing work for a kids charity -- the same kids charity he did work for to complete his court-ordered community service.

Mel completed his 16 hours of community service several months ago with Mending Kids. The community service was part of  the plea deal he struck for allegedly striking ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva.

Mending Kids International provides medical care to underprivileged children. Robyn Gibson is a former President of the Malibu chapter.  Mel and Robyn have been doing work with the charity for years.

I'm here with him right now in a room full of non-english speaking students and Mel is teaching them basic American Phrases...

Mel: So, when someone says "how are you?", you reply "Fine if not for the damn jews!"...Ok, everyone try that.

Class: Fline eefah nog flor tha dlam ooohs

Mel: Very good, now...when someone says "what do you want to eat?" you reply "Some nice sugar tits!"...ok, everyone together.

Class: Sam noce slugeh teth

Mel: Very good!

I tell you, it is just heart warming to see the halo over his head glowing so bright.

I don't get why people are allowed to perform their community service committments outside the jurisdiction from where the crime was perpetrated. It was the "people" i.e. citizens of whatever California city/county that were wronged (along with Ms. Whatshername). No offense to this charity, but let's keep it local k?

One would imagine that there isn't a whole lot of Yiddish spoken by the kids that he's helping...should he fly to Israel for a proper punishment?

It's up to the charity to decide how best to utilize him and his skillset, so if they're oaky with it, it's all good.

Unlike some of the Wanna-be Celebrities out there, I bet Mel finishes his Community Service.

Though it would be nice if he did the community service here in LA, at least he's doing it. Helping children regardless of where they are is good.

Mel does charity work regardless of some plea deal. He's been doing it for years. At least out of country he won't have the camera crews following him around. Go Mel !!!! Hope he finds true happiness.
